The Good Old Fashioned Frozen Custard Shop In Washington DC That Will Take You Back In Time
Sometimes, in a busy city like DC, all you really want to do is slow things down and go back to a simpler time. And luckily for us, there is a perfect spot in DC where everyone can go back in time and enjoy delicious desserts. Goodies Frozen Custard is a 1950s-inspired soda bar and it is the best custard shop in DC.
If you’ve been in DC long enough, you probably have heard of Goodies. It’s a 1950s inspired soda bar serving Wisconsin style frozen custard.
Goodies began as a food truck. In fact, they still serve treats in their 60 year old Metro Van all over the district pays homage to a simpler time and it’s a delightful experience that will take you down memory lane while treating you with delicious custard.
Goodies also opened an old fashioned soda bar at 1400 Independence Avenue SW in the USDA office building. This cute shop is the perfect place to enjoy delicious custard in cool air conditioning!
The shop is located inside a building but you won’t be able to miss it! it looks just like an old fashioned soda shop from the 1950s.
The shop is complete with a little bar and a small seating area. It has all the details you’d want to make you feel like you’re in another era!
They serve more than just custard there too. They serve sandwiches, coffee, milkshakes, tacos and more.
But let’s talk about the reason to go: the custard! It’s creamy, flavorful and the perfect summer treat.
You can get in a cup or a cone, get a sundae or add toppings! They have plenty of different flavors, and each one is equally delicious.
But if you really want a treat, we recommend getting the donut custard sandwich. You can get a sweet, juicy donut in a variety of flavors stuffed with fantastic frozen custard.
The sky is the limit with the ways you can enjoy custard at Goodies! For example, who wouldn't enjoy a Twinkie stuffed with custard?
The staff is friendly and the owners are often found behind the counter whipping up custard. From the decor to the food to the staff, Goodies goes above and beyond offering the full 1950s experience.
Stop into Goodies for a treat this summer or follow their food truck on
